* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', during the flying lesson, Ron's broom springs up and [[AmusingInjuries baps him right in the face]] when he tries to command it to fly up to his hand. [[ButtMonkey Even Harry and]] '''[[ButtMonkey Neville]]''' [[ButtMonkey can't help laughing at his failure.]] [[FreezeFrameBonus If you pause at the right time]], Ron looks like he's going to [[ActuallyPrettyFunny laugh]] when he says "Shut up, Harry." This provides the main page image.

* In ''Film/SurLaPisteDuMarsupilami'', any damage inflicted on the soldiers fighting the Franchise/{{Marsupilami}} is this kind. One of them get slammed into the ground head-first... and then makes this muffled comment: "Hey, there're moles...."

Added DiffLines:

* This is a RunningGag with George in ''Film/ScaryMovie 3''. Among others, Cindy comes home to find him slumped down on the table and has to shake him awake. She asks him what happened and he says that he and her son Cody were playing a fun game when... then he looks down and... "Ooh, Yahtzee!" (''stands up and bangs his head on a shelf'') Also, later when he meets the aliens, they choke him because it's how they say hello. And then there's [[GroinAttack how they say goodbye]].


** Tony Stark sets the suit's thrusters to ten percent power, and is slammed against the ceiling hard enough that, realistically, he should have broken at least a few bones... from that or from the subsequent face-first fall on the floor.

* In ''Film/{{Ogginoggen}}'', young girls Ida and Klara stuff jellyfish down their shirts to create GagBoobs. Of course, then they both get stung, sending them running off to the showers.

* Done multiple times to the title character in ''Film/{{Deadpool}}, due to his powerful HealingFactor and nigh-immortality. For example, when he tries to attack [[SuperToughness Colossus]], Deadpool ends up hurting himself in such a ridiculous manner that even the normally moody Negasonic Teenage Warhead can't keep a straight face.

* During the TrainingMontage of "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' Yao gets his buttock pierced by a burning arrow, which is played for laughs. This is particularly notable since Mulan's stomach wound later is not only played for drama, but also a major plot point.



* The ''Film/HomeAlone'' movies practically ran on this trope, subjecting Harry and Marv to traps that would have killed or maimed them very badly.
** Wrestler and author MickFoley, who loves Christmas and everything related to it (the first two films happen on Christmas), once had a doctor review ''Home Alone 2'' with him. The doctor concluded at least half of the traps/injuries the villains experience would likely have killed them instantly in real life.

badly.

The doctor concluded at least half of the traps/injuries the villains experience would likely have killed them instantly in real life.



* Creator/LaurelAndHardy lived this trope in their movies - though one scene in ''Film/TheMusicBox'' looks genuinely painful to this troper: Stanley, pushed once too often, pokes a finger in Ollie's eye - then, staggering in pain, Ollie steps on a nail in a board that ''sticks to his foot''. Gaaah.

Added DiffLines:

* In the climax of ''Film/ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld'', the main characters dangle off of a fire escape and then all fall down in various painful, and yet very funny manners. Also, Mrs. Marcus's tripping on the banana peel, but this is because she's a horrible shrew.
* The ''Film/JamesBond'' movie ''Film/LiveAndLetDie'' has an amusing death scene at the end. Bond pops a compressed air pellet into the mouth of the villain with alarming and [[HowUnscientific jarring]] effects: he literally ''swells up like a balloon'' and hovers up into the air, where he continues to expand until he explodes with ''no gore whatsoever''. Such a sudden, cartoonish moment in a movie that has so far been at least vaguely grounded in the laws of physics was a bit hard to stomach for most. It's no surprise that this was Roger Moore's first Bond movie, signifying the beginning of a sillier, more outlandish Bond than before.
* Played with in ''Film/DeathBecomesHer''. Two women had taken an [[WhoWantsToLiveForever eternal youth potion]]. But being unable to die, well, one falls down a staircase and ends up with many injuries (the ER doctor makes a list of them and shortly later has a heart attack), the most prominent a broken neck; and the other is shot by the first in the stomach, leaving a fist-sized hole clear through her torso.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhRUe-gz690 duel scene]] between King Arthur and the Black Knight in ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''. Classic example of escalation of comedy violence.
--> '''King Arthur''': "Look, you stupid bastard. You've got no arms left."
--> '''Black Knight''': "It's [[OnlyAFleshWound just a flesh wound!]]"
** What about the line the Black Knight says when he's got no legs?
--> '''Black Knight''': "I'll bite your legs off!"
* ''Film/IronMan1''. Tony sets the suit's thrusters to ten percent power, and is slammed against the ceiling hard enough that, realistically, he should have broken at least a few bones... from that or from the subsequent face-first fall on the floor.
** Then, there's the scene when Tony's assistant, Pepper Potts, walks into his lab just as he's testing one of the repulsor beams in the suit's gloves. The recoil throws Tony offscreen and you hear him hit the far wall a couple seconds later. Pepper's reaction, mainly her complete lack of concern for his safety, is what really sells it.
* During the TrainingMontage of "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' Yao gets his buttock pierced by a burning arrow, which is played for laughs. This is particularly notable since Mulan's stomach wound later is not only played for drama, but also a major plot point.
* ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' were famous for getting into goofy slap-fights and otherwise injuring each other (and themselves) in an amusing fashion. (Joe Besser, for some years working with them, claimed that the left side of Larry Fine's face was noticeably coarser than the other side, which he attributed to Moe's less-than-staged slaps.)
* ''Film/SpaceJam'' uses it not only with the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, but with the live-action actors - Michael Jordan is curled into a ball, and Wayne Knight is crushed flat.
* The ''Film/HomeAlone'' movies practically ran on this trope, subjecting Harry and Marv to traps that would have killed or maimed them very badly.
** Wrestler and author MickFoley, who loves Christmas and everything related to it (the first two films happen on Christmas), once had a doctor review ''Home Alone 2'' with him. The doctor concluded at least half of the traps/injuries the villains experience would likely have killed them instantly in real life.
* ''Film/MouseHunt'': Much of what happens to Ernie and Lars(and Caesar and Catzilla).
* [[ButtMonkey Larabee]] gets a paper stapled to his head twice in the ''Film/GetSmart'' movie by Agent 23 as retribution for not unjamming the photocopier.
* Mostly {{averted|Trope}} in ''Film/ILoveYouBethCooper''. The characters were injured several times but the injuries were dealt with realistically.
* Played straight in ''Film/FoolsGold'' with Matthew Mcconaughey's character, who should have died from intracranial bleeding 30 minutes into the movie.
* Most films with Creator/BudSpencer and/or Creator/TerenceHill.
* "I got shot in the buttocks." -- Film/ForrestGump

* Averted with Jason's [[spoiler: bullet wound]] in ''Film/MysteryTeam''.
* The protagonists at the end of ''Film/TheProducers'' are all sporting these, including a most unfortunate [[FlippingTheBird finger splint]].
* Loki, poor Loki. In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', during the battle near the end, he tells the Hulk about how poorly he thinks of him. Hulk doesn't like it, and proceeds to smash him around, turn around and call him "puny God". Bonus points for [[spoiler:Loki waking shortly thereafter, captured but instantly alert and snarky, in a Loki-shaped depression in the floor]].
* Bifur from ''Film/TheHobbit'' trilogy has a piece of a pick axe embedded in his skull, as seen [[http://www-images.theonering.org/torwp/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/bifur-williamkircher.jpg here]]. Also Dwalin's right ear looks like someone or something took a large bite [[http://cdn1.screenrant.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Hobbit-Dwalin-Tattoos.jpg out of it.]]
* The climax of ''Film/AnimalHouse'' feels a lot like a live-action cartoon. For instance, [[SquashedFlat one character gets flattened as if he were a cartoon character]].
* The deaths of the dogs in ''Film/AFishCalledWanda''.
* Happens in a part of ''[[Film/TheNakedGun Naked Gun 33-1/3]]''. A seedy truck driver attempts to hit on Jane. She fends him off first with a can of pepper spray, and then with a taser that shocks him with [[TechnicolorScience violet electricity]], and then [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking she puts clothes pins on his nipples]], and ''then'' [[UpToEleven he gets hit by a passing semi truck]]. A few scenes later, Jane tries to call Frank, [[FunnyBackgroundEvent and the truck driver gets up and says]] "[[MadeOfIron Aw man, that hurt.]]"
* ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''. William Cage has picked up the invading aliens' ability to GroundHogDayLoop every time they die. He makes contact with Rita Vrataski, who once had the same thing happen to her. Rita trains Cage (a rear-echelon PR officer who's never been combat-trained) using some training robots with NoOSHACompliance. Worse, whenever he's too injured to go into combat, she shoots him in the head to restart the time-loop. Cue FailureMontage of various AmusingInjuries and subsequent BoomHeadshot. One time Cage has had enough and suggests he just [[ContagiousPowers transfer the power back to her]].
-->'''Rita:''' I've tried everything. It doesn't work.\\
'''Cage:''' Have you tried... you know... all the options?\\
'''Rita:''' Oh you mean sex? Yeah, tried it.\\
'''Cage:''' How many times?\\
'''Rita:''' All right. (''pushes button -- robot slams Cage across the room'')
* In ''Film/SurLaPisteDuMarsupilami'', any damage inflicted on the soldiers fighting the Franchise/{{Marsupilami}} is this kind. One of them get slammed into the ground head-first... and then makes this muffled comment: "Hey, there're moles...."
